Its a good job but not a career
Post Commander (Current Employee), Middletown CA,November 17, 2014
As a Security Site Manager the company has given me a lot of perks while at the site and allowed me a flexible schedule. However the quality of people hired has bad and when working and superving others you can imagin the diffrent factors you have to deal with. The company supports you to an extant but will burn you if they have to. In 4 years my site – more... has not gotten a raise and everyone is a little down on that and the benifits are ok at best. – less

By far a terrible place to work
Security (Former Employee), TucsonNovember 8, 2014
Cons: no lunch, no time off
Supervisors who think that the rules don't apply to them, then turn around and get you fired for something they approved, Most officers sleep on the job and don't take the security of the premises seriously, Employees stealing from the site they work on and blame the public. Supervisor asked me to give a random individual a ride in the company vehicle, – more... and when I refused and said it was against company policy he told me not to worry about it, ect........ Very dishonest supervisor, GP – less

Great place to work if you like bouncing around from job site to job site. Most work is shift work. Most sites are fun and laid back. Nothing extremely hard.

As a Field Training Manager for Universal Protection Service, you are expected to fill all last minute scheduling and call offs. I have learned a lot during my employment with Universal Protection Service, as far as scheduling and reporting systems.

A bunch of liars
LACKY (Former Employee), PALM DESERTOctober 27, 2014
Cons: branch office is full of liars
I was diagnosed with Cancer, but yet I continued to work for this company, Yes I did miss work because of chemothereapy treatments, and being too sick to get out of bed. I had to go down to 4 days to keep my medical insurance, because there is no way I could afford their health insurance. Plus, being a single parent I needed to have health insurance. – more... Things went fine with working 4 days and treatments, until I told my boss, I needed to keep working 4 days to keep medical insurance. I was called into the office on my day off and told I was being removed from my post because of the days of work I was missing. I was told a new post was being sought for me and I even volunteered to work grave yard at places no one wanted to work. For two weeks I emailed the human resources manager at the local branch office, and was told more than once the regional manager was still looking. I was ignored when I called into the office as well. 2 Months later after being told they were still looking I received a letter telling me I was terminated the day I was removed from post. I WAS LIED TO FOR 2 MONTHS!!!!! They never intended to find me a new post. THEY DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH OR FAMILY. ALSO MY SUPERVISOR AT MY POST WOULD SLEEP ON DUTY WATCH TV OR MOVIES AND MAKE OTHERS DO HIS JOB BECAUSE HE DIDNT WANT TO MOVE. HE IS A LAZY PERSON WHO WAS PROMOTED AND LET HIS POWER GO TO HIS HEAD. I SHOULD HAVE TURNED OVER THE PICTURES OF HIM SLEEPING ON THE JOB. WHEN I SPOKE UP AND STOOD UP FOR MYSELF I WAS TERMINATED. NO WARNING. – less

Cons: too many to list all.
I can't think of anything nice to say about this company. No communication, poor training, no sick or vacation days, high insurance and poor pay.

Greet guests and perform receptionist duties (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCOctober 1, 2014
Pros: the end of the day
Cons: no health care
Meeting and greeting employee's, checking badges and having visitor's sign in. Management was not able to teach me anything. It was hard dealing management. I got along real well with co-workers. Dealing with unreasonable people was tough. Being friends with the employees.
